Story and art by Nicholas Wild.
A satirical autobiography about a young Frenchman and his hilarious, yet poignant, adventures in the heart of the Middle East. It's 2005. Nicolas Wild is a French cartoonist. He's broke and about to be homeless. He's a man without a plan. That is until destiny shows up in his inbox: a paid job... In Afghanistan! In his graphic Travelogue series, Nicolas Wild brilliantly explores the differences between the Afghan cultures around him and his own, as he and his fellow expat friends crash Asura celebrations, avoid the afterlife and muse on the differences between Christian Easter egg hunts and Islamic penance.
Softcover, 7 1/2-in.x 10 1/2-in., 160 pages, B&W. Cover price $19.95.
Volume 2 - 1st printing.
Looks like Nicolas wasn't done with Kabul after all. Unfulfilled by his old life in Paris, he returns to Afghanistan to resume work at the Zendagui agency. This time around, however, his job is even trickier than illustrating the Constitution. He has to convince Afghans that "Opium is Bad" in a time when no one wants to hear what expatriates have to say. With a charming sense of humor and a genuine love for Afghanistan, Nicolas Wild depicts a series of complicated events, transpiring in a complicated country.
